Look for a small pin hole on the bottom of the laptop. use a pin to push the bios reset button,,

If there is no pin hole you will need to pull the bios battery to reset.

Ive got a E system and it needs a bypass password this wasnt entered in to the system when it was first brought please help

Does the laptop ask for a password as soon as you power it on?? If so it is your bios master password to bypass any current password that is set. can supply you with the bios master password you need for only $20 and they guarantee it to work or your money back. I do laptop repair and I use them when I need a bios password reset or a hard drive password reset.

Bios password on toshiba

Some Toshiba laptops come with a system BIOS password, making anyone without the password unable to get past the BIOS screen at system startup. This is a strong security measure, as it renders a stolen computer useless unless the password is known. If you have a Toshiba laptop and want to change the BIOS password, you can quickly do it.

1. Power on the computer while holding down the "Esc" key. Enter your current password when prompted and press "Enter."
2. Press "F1" to enter the BIOS setup menu. Highlight "REGISTERED" with the arrow keys and press the space bar. Enter your password and press "Enter."
3. Restart the computer while holding "Esc" and hit "F1" again to enter the BIOS menu. Highlight "NOT REGISTERED" with the arrow keys and press the space bar. Enter your new password and press "Enter." Type the password again for verification and hit "Enter." Press "End" to save the changes, and "Y" to exit.

I hope you find it very helpful. Best regards.

Dell Laptop Trouble


Dell Laptops are built to retail the BIOS passwords in a EEPROM, so
removing batteries will not help you in removing the password. Since
Dell only sells direct, and not through retail stores, they can take
the additional security measure for their owners to protect their
information if the computers are stolen. If a Dell Laptop is stolen
and the owner has properly set the BIOS passwords, the only thing the
thief can now do is to try to sell it as parts, or to pawn it off on
some ****** who doesn't check for BIOS passwords first. Dell does
recognize ownership transfers as I have gotten the ownership of a
system transferred to me, as well as transferring ownership of some
of my older systems to their new owners.

If you are willing to search around theinternet, you will find lots
of people willing to sell you a service of removing the password for
you. You can find people willing to sell you a new EEPROM chip
without a password telling you that soldering this new chip on the
system board is the solution to your problem. I have even seen one
site that claims to give you the instructions on how to remove the
password yourself.

Before you put too much effort into this, you might consider checking
with Dell, and/or your local police station to see if the system has
been reported stolen. If it has, then the store you bought it from
might be able to help the police to catch the thief before he steals
another laptop, who knows, maybe the next one he steals might be

If you forget any of your passwords, call Dell.For your protection, Dell's technical support staff will ask youfor proof of your identity to make sure that an unauthorizedperson is not trying to use the computer.

Did you contact DELL. As long as you have the police report, they should be allowed to help you. That is a security issue. We can not tell you that because you could be someone with a stolen laptop. We have no way of knowing this. You would not want us to explain to someone how to break into your laptop would you?
